on the united states, for sure we should have cancelled his visa instead of saying, well, we'll look at his visa again after it's expired. because the results of that was 300 people on the plane almost expired. so this is a very big wake-up call. and the first place we should wake up is to toss out the views of the so-called privacy advocates who have been hangin' around the fringes of this question for the last five years, a body scan with the technology today doesn't invade anybody's privacy. you can't tell whether it's a man or a woman. >> but yet it's these privacy groups, governor, that still make a big deal of it. we're just getting word that the minneapolis airport. more on that. we'll let you know but it's on the heels of this disruption in newark a couple days ago. but what keeps happening here? >> the congress needs to stand up to these folks and say, hey, mandatory patdowns are a bigger invasion of privacy than the body scan. i would hope that the president of the united states tells people today that there will be mandatory body scans on every domestic polite in the united states and
to the united states. meanwhile in yemen, several other countries restricted public access to their embassies today joining the united states and britain. in tonight's lead focus, we have more on the situation in yemen from our german partner. >> reporter: cement barriers block access to the u.s. embassy which has been closed indefinitely. u.s. national security adviser john brennan said the closure was a response to threats from al qaeda. >> i looked at the intelligence that's available as far as the plans for al qaeda to carry out attacks, possibly against our embassy, possibly against u.s. personnel. decided it was the prudent thing to do to shut the embassy but we're working very closely with the yemeni authority to address the threat that's out there. it just demonstrates that al qaeda is determined to carry out these attacks and we're determined to thwart those attacks. >> reporter: yemen is one of the poorest and most politically unstable coue middle east. in recent years, it has become a breeding ground for terrorists. u.s. officials believe they were behind the failed attempt to brin
focus by the united states on the problems of terrorism and in giving assistance to the government of yemen and following 2003 when there was a sense that al qaeda had been defeat indeed yemen, much of that dropped off. the amount 06 attention, the amount of resources that we gave to yemen dropped off significantly. and since 2006, with the reconstitution of al qaeda in yemen, only platedly has the united states sort of focused again on the problem there and of course the reason why we're talking about it this morning is because omar farooq aomar that took took omar farooq kathwari was coming from yemen. caller: my question is how long have we been with this war against yemen? i mean, i don't mean to go to a conspiracy theory but i read in ha general petraeus and another went down there so when tough head of arms services committee go to yemen, they are not just going to see if it's -- >> well, i wouldn't characterize it at all as a war in yemen. and senator mccain is my former boss. i worked for him for 5 1/2 years on foreign policy and so i can state categorically what was on his
starts now. >>> we're supposed to be seeing new procedures for folks flying to the united states. but are airports following the rules? tonight checking on your security situation. and why your treatment will depend not only on where you're from, but where you've been. but following a green beret as he goes off to war. >> i feel more nervous more for her and the kids. >> tonight one man's mission and the impact on those left behind. and a tremendous accomplishment. teams finally unveil the tallest structure that man has ever created. today a deadly shootout inside a federal building in las vegas. investigators say a man wearing black walked into the lobby of a federal courthouse, pulled out a shotgun from his jacket and opened fire. all of the video from that incident in just a moment. seven u.s. marshalls and security officers later responded with a hail of bullets. one court officer is dead tonight. a deputy u.s. marshal is in the hospital tonight and the gunman was shot and killed. so why did he do it? now we've learned he was upset because he lost a lawsuit. more on the motiv
in the history of the united states in the last administration after we got hit on 9/11, we had to form the department of homeland security because all of these agencies -- the cia, the fbi, the national security agency, local law enforcement, nobody could talk to one another. so here we are. did that work? did that really work or was this just the due diligence of american bureaucracy just not working? what happened here? oh, but we got to pin it on obama. we can't wait to pin it on him because he's weak on terror. you know, when this is all washed out, we are going to find out -- and we'll dig out the sound bites because they're in the archive. i remember joe lieberman, oh, we just have to have the rearrangement of government so we can protect america. i remember all that. i remember dick cheney coming out and saying that we have to do this because we're going to get hit again, that we just -- well, can we just say this? we kind of got lucky on christmas day, that there were some people that got after it and it was a failed attempt? but we knew about the red flags, we had the intel, i
started talking about a stimulus package in the united states that was coupled -- and i stress this point -- that was coupled with an indication of how we are going to deal with the united states' medium term budget problems. we will see the largest buildup in peacetime public debt. how we deal with that is critical. i was talking about an "l" shaped recovery, i was not really focusing on the downside risks that i see. i would say some of them have been mentioned and have a very good chance of materializing in 200010. -- in 2010. the middle of 2010 is the short term. the long term is beyond 2010. the full risks that i would indicate -- the four risks that i would indicate, and i would put them in the order of the way i worry about them. the first is the situation in europe. philip correctly mentioned parallels with the convertibility plan. these countries really have to be dealing with budget deficits that are in double digits in the middle of a recession without having an exchange rate mechanism or independent monetary policy to deal with it. that is a risk. that is a train wreck waiting
him into the united states and britain. so this is the kind of threat where it's maybe an individual now rather than in one particular cell that al qaeda can utilize in this type of aircraft attack. >> there's still a lot of unfinished work today-to-do for the obama administration in reforming the way intelligence is shared inside the u.s. bureaucracy for looking at the problem of signal to noise in the system, wrefb information is shared, how do you distinguish reliable and important information from false reporting and misleading reporting. there's... anyone who works in the system who deals with threat reporting testifies that there is an enormous amount of noise in the system. and even if you share the noise, that doesn't actually create the clarity you need to act against real threats. >> yemen is a country's in great chaos at the moment. there's a civil war in the north draining off a lot of military resources at the moment. there's a separate insurgency which is increasingly violent in the south. the government is running out of money as it loses oil exports and so i think wha
-terror strategy. am i wrong? >> i think it's deeper than that. the united states has a problem. if this was a political matter, then you could have one level of concern. but the fact is that we are in a war, our enemies are clever enough to take haggai nearian, train him in yemen, ship him through amsterdam. our bureaucracy is so lacking in focus that even when this guy's father called the american embassy and warned us specifically about his son, we couldn't find a way to stop him and frankly issue the white house advisor yesterday made no sense when he said there was no smoking gun. we don't have to approve the visa or the flight of every foreigner who wants to come here. the burden of proof ought to be on that person. if somebody's father calls and says, my son has gone radical. i think he may be in a training camp. i think that ought to be a high hurdle for that person to get a visa to the united states or be allowed to fly into this country. >> you know the bureaucracy is always going to screw up. it's just never going to be entirely perfect. and this flight emanating in t

and ally to united states and the partnership between our countries is -- a new beginning, based on mutual respect and mutual interest that the president called for in cairo. we will discuss how to deepen and broaden our partnership. among the matters that we consulted on -- the situation in yemen is a top concern. how can we work together and with others to stabilize yemen? assist in securing its borders and providing for its people in combating al qaeda? the instability in yemen is a threat to regional and global stability. and we are working with qatar and others to think of the best way forward to duck -- to try to deal with the security concerns. certainly, we know that this is a difficult set of challenges but they have to be addressed. i also thank the prime minister for their efforts to facilitate an end to the crisis in darfur and to promote security and stability in the broader middle east as well as africa. we both have a shared, mutual interest in moving towards a comprehensive peace between israelis and palestinians. we share the goal of an amendment -- an independent and viab

at the united states and there's a lot of evidence that employment has been cut their rapidly and more significantly men in some sense warranted by demand. and this is reflected and so has investments in inventories it's that iraq and this is reflected much better than expected earnings of nonfinancial corporate, by the way not just in the united states but in europe as well in the course of a 2009. and a strong provincial position. this suggests to me that along with many others i expect a turn in the employment picture. especially given the latest numbers coming from the p.m. i, that suggest that we are still on a strong expansion path. the other two factors that i will point to one which go beyond deferring them souse, are in the order of importance i would say policies remain supportive in 2010. a large part of the stimulus package is still to be spent supporting to the omb. i think it's only about a third of the stimulus money has been spent in this country. financial support of the banking system remains. i'm actually encouraged by the fact that the largest banks in the united st

sought to strike, not only american targets in yemen, but the united states, itself. >> the president made it clear where the fault lies for the failed attack on christmas day. >> this was not a failure to collect intelligence. it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had. >> reporter: today's meeting comes as the administration finds itself on the defensive about how it initially handled the incident. >> sadly, the president is judged more on his public relations than on his governing. >> reporter: the challenge for the administration is clear -- >> terrorists only have to be lucky or successful once. we have to be successful every single time. that is an incredibly high standard, but one we should aspire to. >> reporter: and the president indicated just that. >> the margin for error is slim. the consequences of failure can be catastrophic. >> reporter: brian, the president also confirmed publically that the united states would no longer release any guantanamo bay detainees of yemeni descent back to their home country. guantanamo bay may not shut

the world, in britain and the united states as well. jon. jon: these reports of prisoners getting out of gitmo and going back to yemen to fight, what can you tell us about that? >> well, on very many levels, it's concerning. it's concerning, as i said, for nearby saudi arabia, because some of the gitmo detainees have been released , have gotten into yemen, and then they may be released to saudi arabia, gone into yemen and gone back to saudi, one tried to detonate an explosive device right next to one of the saudi princes recently, but we are hearing about a dozen of the former guantanamo detainees are actively involved now, at a rather high level, in this al-qaeda -- in al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, the affiliate the based in yemen. we also are hearing reports of a high recidivism rate, 14 percent from those released from guantanamo get back into terrorism in some way and the biggest concern is what's due for the 91 yemenis released from guantanamo bay, what will become of them, what should become of them, so it's a pretty massive concern and neighboring somalia, the group al-sha
on the national mall where the president of the united states, of course, would be taking the oath of office on january 20th and addressing the world with his inaugural address. they took it quite seriously in the last 48 to 72 hours before the inauguration. increasingly they were picking up signs that made them feel like this was a serious and possible threat. they met repeatedly with each other. old team, the bush team, the new team, the obama team, during this transition period in order to figure out what to do about it. it was a moment of quiet tension there for a new president who was just about to take office. >> i understand president obama canceled a rehearsal of the inauguration. when was the president actually briefed? do you know what his reaction was. >> caller: he was kept up to date in the few days leading up to the inauguration. there was one moment in particular we write about in the magazine, the night before the inauguration, his counterterrorism adviser john brennan and a couple foreign policy advisers jump into the limousine with him as he's heading off to an inaugural ev

statements relative to the united states' position on the issue with the bombing and additional security that is takiki place right now at airports around the world. as you know, from have been increased security measures put in place at airports for people entering the united states, including patdowns, additional screenings and some cases they are hand checking luggage and going through every, single item that's inside a piece of luggage before allowing it to be put on board an therapy is inbound for the united states. the president, of course, was in hawaii at the time of this bombing, the attempted bombing of the flight that arrived in detroit, michigan a couple of weeks ago, and he has made strong statements in terms of what happened and why it happened. a lot of finger pointing has been going on for the past week or so over who is responsible for allowing this passenger to get on board with explosives in his underwear. you'll recall a gentleman from africa was on his way to the united states and attempted to ignite a substance packed in his clothing. people on board the flight wres

>> but that's about method and to personally attack the president of the united states, it looks like he's rooting against obama, rooting against the sitting president who is commander in chief. we have top understand that the vice president of the united states told a big fat lie. he's not telling the truth. he's emboldening the terrorist. i know that's a serious charge but look at what he's doing. he's saying that our president is weak, letting down our guard. a talk show host, fine, say anything you want. >> former vice president you don't say that. that emboldens terrorist. >> what's the proper move to hand they will if you're in the white house? what do you do to fight this sfwhak. >> i think the proper move is to absolutely call dick cheney on every lie. barack obama has done more in pakistan, stepping up the fight in yemen, since then doubled the support for yemen and trying to get rid of the unnecessary aggravation by closing down gitmo. the president is being irresponsible. >> gentlemen, good to have your take on this tonight. appreciate your time again. i've asked the a
in making the decides united states and in fact the world safer. >> guest: the president since he came to office has been trying to sound that theme. he traveled overseas, trying to, at least, at least make, make the words that come out of the president be about more cooperation and so on. and i think he is going to try to incorporate this theme, which is, you know, the concern about terrorism and, perhaps something that, has been gone into the background, under his presidency, until now. he is going to try to merge those two things and you will probably hear him talk about cooperation overseas to help make everybody safe. >> host: let's go to the phones. our first call comes from jacksonville, florida. william on our line for independents. good morning. >> caller: good morning, sir. good to see you. i like you. you're pretty informative. hello? >> host: go ahead, william. >> caller: yes, sir. how do we fight an enemy that don't wear no uniform, number one, the terrorists? that is the crazy thing i ever see. can nobody speak the language over there? can nobody go to yemen or afghanista
. some of them got trained here in the united states. so you don't declare war against these countries and say that we have to go in and start bombing pakistan and bombing afghanistan and bombing yemen. they happen to be there. that's true. but they're there because we stimulate them. we follow them to the hands of osama bin laden by us going there and causing people to get some angry, it helps his recruiting efforts. he's written about this. he has said this. he says i want the americans to go over here and bankrupt their country and besides, it will help myr recruiting efforts. >> larry: tomorrow night mike he kel chertoff will be with us. will it shift attention away from health care he reform and other issues? we'll talk about that after the break. than a comparable honda civic. this chevy traverse has better mileage than honda pilot. the all-new chevy equinox has better mileage than honda cr-v. and chevy malibu has better mileage than accord. however, honda does make something that we just can't compete with. it's self propelled. chevy. compare us to anyone and may the best car wi
the president of trying to pretend the united states is not at war with terrorists. deputy national security adviser john brennan countered cheney's comments during a series of sunday talk shows. watch. >> either the vice president is willfully mischaracterizing this president's position in terms of language he uses and actions he's taken or he's ignorant of the facts. in neither case, it doesn't speak well of what the vice president is doing. the clear evidence is this president has been very, very strong. in his inaugural address he said we're at war with this internal group of terrorists. >> larry: congressman paul, what about about it? he's in your party. what about dick cheney's complaints? >> well, i think he had his eight years, and he's caused a lot of trouble for our country and perpetuated a war in iraq unnecessary and wrong-headed. i would say it would be best he not be so critical right now. but i'm still not only critical of that policy, i think the policy remains the same, and we've hear it on the show tonight already. they are on attack and declared war against us, and it's al

of the united states government, but ultimately not analyzed correctly and was not put in a place where this person would have ended up on a no-fly list. the president is angry about that and wants these intelligence and homeland security officials to do better. i think that's the tone we'll hear from the president today. >> savannah, to that point, we just had a heated conversation with a republican strategist who agrees with dick cheney and michael steele saying this administration and the democrats have been soft on terror. might we hear some agregression from the president meeting those critics advising john brennan over the weekend shows? >> reporter: i don't know if he'll take that on in this speech. for everything i've heard about this statement, is that it will be focused really on what happened on christmas day, and not on this larger issue. behind the scenes, the administration's been pretty aggressive pushing back on that criticism by cheney, that somehow they're soft on the war on terror or don't know we're at war, as the former vice president allege. they point out, of cour
